Product Review: 4D Slim Tea

While I was in Las Vegas, my order from Sasa arrived. In that order was 3 boxes for 4D Slim Black Oolong Tea.




(GRRR! Blogger rotating my pictures again!)


Each box comes with 14 tea packets and you are supposed to drink it twice a day for 3 weeks, then rest a week. According to Sasa's website it says, "Black oolong 4Dslim helps you to obtain an obvious slimming effect! It becomes famous rapidly since it is launched in Japan, just because of “target-oriented”, it burns fat and block the intestinal absorption at the same time. 4Dslim providing a one-stop solution on reducing belly circumference, thigh circumference, hip circumference and arm circumference. 4Dslim is definitely your best choice!"

It tasted like regular tea. It had no funky aftertaste. As I usually drink tea, it wasn't difficult for me to think about drinking it. I had no adverse effects from drinking this. I do believe that it did help to reduce some body mass but not anything significant. I think that perhaps it is mainly because it reduces water retention. While I do not like to measure loss in pounds because I'd rather lose inches than pounds, I will say that during the 3 weeks of drinking this, I did end up losing about 3 lbs. Nothing significant but I do think that I look slimmer and my clothes are fitting a little bit looser.

I have finished my 3 week cycle and am debating on whether or not to order more. Ordering from Sasa, it costs $20.30 per box and you need 3 boxes per cycle. That's $60.90 a month--for tea! Well, we'll see what happens during this one week rest period. Of course, that will extend longer since I haven't ordered another batch yet. I am hoping to find something that I can obtain instore easily that has the same ingredients and results of this tea.

This is an interesting idea, I have seen diet teas here but they are usually from China. I wonder if it's any cheaper here in Japan.

If you can find it, hopefully it will be cheaper there. I'm thinking of ordering it again, maybe trying two more cycles and then stop. Haven't decided yet though.

it does seem pricey for tea! but if it would help lose some pounds or inches, i think its worth it. ;)

Elisa ♥ said...

gosh, this really helps =D !? whoa but it's a bit pricey to me..

galpal.hi said...

@coffretgorge--I'm in agreement with you. Plus, it also tastes yummy!

*Kat*

galpal.hi said...

@Elisa--Yup, it does actually work. It's not like I have a whole lot to lose so perhaps another couple of rounds and I will be good if it continues to work as it did during this first round.

Steph said...

wow $60 for tea a month =0
i'd rather lose inches then pounds too =p lol

but it sounds like it works~ can't wait to hear your final verdict if you decide to order more =D

Fruity Lashes said...

$60 for a month. pretty expensive i say. hopefully it works.

galpal.hi said...

@Steph--So far, I'm leaning towards ordering more. Was thinking of ordering 6 boxes for two more cycles but decided if I do, will order only 3 boxes. That way I "save" the next order up to be able to meet the minimum for free shipping in case there's something else that I want. I like ordering from Sasa but don't order regularly since I have to wait until I can meet the minimum for free shipping.

@Fruity Lashes--So far, it has done what it said so that's a positive thing.

Thanks for the email Kathy! I will find time to reply soon. I've been helping out my parents' shop this weekend and meeting ppl in the day time so not had much time. Can I just say you are so slim you don't need to lose any weight!'m I personally think you have a great figure. But also good to head it actually worked! I find green tar helps a lot too. Enjoy the rest of the weekend! Xx

Nic Nic said...

iPad is crap, give me crazy typos lol. I meant green tea not tar lol

Jennifer said...

hope the tea works for you Kat! :D i saw the body shop eye shimmers swatches below and who'd have thought they look gorgeous over cream and black shadows as base!!

galpal.hi said...

@Nic Nic--You have problems typing on the iPad too? OMG! I thought that it would be easier because it's bigger than the iPhone. I have major problems typing on the iPhone.

Thank you! I guess that I'd just like to go back to my pre-pregnancy size a kazillion years ago.

*Kat*

galpal.hi said...

@Jennifer--Thanks! This first round was very promising.

Yeah, I wouldn't have given the eye shimmers any thought so it's a good thing that the SA was showing it to the home stay girls. It is very unimpressive seeing it in the case.

evie said...

wowweee! it seems to give good results! hehe expensive for tea but if it works why not!plus using other slimming methods like slimming centres might not work and they cost even more!

galpal.hi said...

@evie--Thank you for your input! I agree, slimming centers might not work. Plus I'm way too lazy to go to one.

Hey guys, if you want to use this tea I have nothing against it but I would not adhere to the 1 week rest period after using it for 3 weeks. My advice is to rest 1 week after each week it may not give you the result that you want, but it's safer. The one ingredient I have a problem with is Senna - which is an herb that stimulates the GI tract to facilitate - bowel emptying. It's an ingredient that has a lot of literature on it since it is often used when people take narcotic compounds which is constipating. The only problem is that your bowel might get lazy and become dependent on the herb to go use the washroom. The general recommendation for this type of agents is not to use it more than 1 week at a time. It is nice to think that there is an awesome product that will actually do what it promises...but you can always assess how legitimate it is by looking at the key ingredients. Hope this helps! - Amber

galpal.hi said...

@Amber--Thank you for your insight and comment. I have to admit that I didn't really check out the ingredients that well but I did look out for a couple of known ingredients that I didn't want to ingest.

I must say though, that I didn't experience any problems after using it for 3 weeks. Then again, I haven't done another round of it either.

Koko said...

Hi nic!
I already used 4D slim lol, but I can c any change lol. Is it the problem that I was eat too much ? Can u give me some tip ?

galpal.hi said...

@Koko--I don't think that you can expect a miracle with this product. I didn't change the way I ate or exercised but I did lose some. It wasn't much but it was noticeable to me. In general, I also felt better--perhaps that was the detox properties that made me feel better.

Anonymous said...

@Nic! ----- oh ok! but I used this product already 1month but my face still like a balloon, and my weight just only going up, it didnt lose my weight. Also the important thing is I eat less but lots of milk, but didnt exercise! :( so nic did you have some more better product to show me?

Waiting for your gd news lol.
Thx Dear!!

Surely nice article. I have read it carefully and benefited from it so much. Thanks. I also like tea, but I like Oolong Tea better. I suggest you to write more about oolong tea and that will surely attract more visitors.
